Our Goals for Eating Disorder Treatment
Safe, Compassionate Eating Disorder Treatment
- We acknowledge that each client’s eating disorder has served a valid purpose for them. We collaborate with each client to help them find other ways to cope with life stressors and expectations.

- We foster shame resilience through group therapy to promote opportunities to interact with peers and feel less alone in our struggles.
- We partner each client with a dietitian to develop an individualized meal plan to honor and nourish the needs of their body and to improve their health.
- We help each client engage with their community to help them identify new coping skills, allow opportunities to practice skills learned in treatment, and have fun.
- We work with each of our clients to expand their support system to ensure continued support post-discharge.
